Could this smudge prove Bigfoot DOES exist? Explorers desperate to test DNA in marks left on abandoned car window

With two paw marks clearly visible on the car window, this smudge could provide the DNA evidence that finally proves the existence of Bigfoot.
Explorers have launched an appeal to carry out a full analysis on the mark left behind when an unidentified beast wiped its face against the glass of the car in California's Sierra National Forest.
They are desperate to hire a forensic analyst to take samples and prove once and for all that the mythical animal exists.


Calling card? Is this smudge on the window of a car left in California's Sierra National Forest the evidence that Bigfoot does exist?


Testing: Explorers claim the marks are made by a large creature rubbing alongside the car, before peering inside.

Without the money to do so they claim they mystery will remain unsolved - even though the evidence is right in front of them.
The print was left on the car belonging to paranormal explorer Jeffrey Gonzalez after he and some colleagues abandoned it during a snowstorm.
When they came back they found a smudge which apparently showed that an animal had placed its left and right paws on the window and peered inside.
Mr Gonzalez asked forensic photographer Mark Burrow to take a look and he said there could be DNA left behind.

'As I was looking at the windows, I told Jeff it looked like something came up to the truck, rubbed up against it, swiped along the side of it, and then just put its face up on the window and looked in - that's what it looks like,' he said.
Mr Gonzalez, the head of the Sanger Paranormal Society, is now appealing for the public to help pay for him to conduct a full DNA analysis.
'We need somebody to come forward to take this DNA and get it mapped,' he said.

'Since nobody knows what a Bigfoot is, there's no available DNA for it. But by testing this DNA, by process of elimination we can find out if it was a bear, gorilla, baboon or something else.
'If it's not any of those, and you've eliminated all the possibilities, and it's not human, then what's left?'
He added: 'I believe Bigfoot exists, but I don't believe it has mystical powers like many people say it does. I think it's just an unknown species that hasn't been discovered or hasn't fully evolved.'

The myth of Bigfoot has been a fixture of local legend in the Pacific Northwest of America for centuries.
It has achieved a level of notoriety on a par with the Loch Ness monster, despite no concrete evidence it actually exists.
Known as a 'Sasquatch', it stands on two legs but is covered with fur and makes crude animal noises instead of speech.
The number of Bigfoot sightings spiked after an article in the December 1959 issue of now-defunct monthly magazine True.

The most celebrated instance was the Patterson-Gimlin film shot by Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin in northern California in 1967, around the time that the original Planet of the Apes was released.
The film's director John Landis later accused its costume designer John Chambers, who created the monkey suits, of being the man in the 'sighting' footage.
